In today’s TV Guide Canada, Suds Report, Nelson Branco reports some sad news. Long time real-life hubby and wife, ATWT’s Colleen Zenk Pinter (Barbara) and soap vet, Mark Pinter are calling it quits.  Zenk Pinter  told Suds, “ I filed for dissolution of marriage of her husband for 23 years on the grounds of infidelity and abandonment.”

Geez!  Even the most long-running entertainment couples are now having trouble keeping their marriages from falling apart!

I am so saddened by the dissolution of Colleen & Mark’s marriage. Colleen has been through so much with her cancer ordeal and now this horrible shock. I love you Colleen… you are one brave lady and God be with you through the days ahead. I love ATWT and I am going to miss it terribly when it goes off the air. You are the most beautiful actress I have ever seen on any soap. I pray all good things for you. Cheryl

I have enjoyed watching Colleen on ATWT for years. She is beautiful. I remember when Mark was on the show, I could tell when they fell in love then married. I am so sad to hear this news about the trouble. I pray that they can possibly work through, and if not hope that they have peace and happiness.

“Long-running”?? Do you even know who the mother of Mark’s children is? It isn’t Colleen. This is not a “long-running” person.

I miss ATWT verry much and I personally think that Collen Zenk Pinter was best! And I hope that she can get on another soap opera or t.v show!

I am shocked and saddened about the news of your break up. I have met both of you several times and never thought that I would read about the dissolution of your marriage. You are fortunate to have caught and treated your oral cancer. You are a very strong woman.

Don’t feel sorry for Colleen. She will step on you to get to the top. Beware, she has ALMOST everyone fooled. Adulter and wicked person. Don’t be fooled. She is not a victim, just another role she has assumed.

As a BIG fan of theirs, I am shocked and saddened by their decision to end their marriage. I always thought that they had such a strong and happy marriage. With relationships these days, YA’ just never know!!!

ATWT and OLTL Alum Mary Linda Rapelye Passes Away at 76

She got her soap start as Faith Kipling, the wife of the evil Dr. Ivan Kipling on One Life to Live (1979-1980) and later came to Oakdale and As the World Turns as lawyer, Maggie Crawford (1980-1985), and now comes sad news that actress Mary Linda Rapelye has died from a battle with cancer.

Mary Linda actually passed away last month on April 5th, and according to The Booth Bay Register she was surrounded by her her brother Gardiner Rapelye Jr. and dear friends Julianna and Will Anderson by her side.  She was 76 years old at the time of her death.

Mary Linda started a long career of acting when she was only 5.  After her part in an outdoor production at The Starlight Theater in her home town, Kansas City, Missouri, she climbed off the stage and sat in her father’s lap. This was to be the beginning of her work spanning nearly eight decades on stage, screen and television. She is best known for her roles in Truman Capote’s In Cold Blood, and of course, OLTL and ATWT.  She also made a memorable appearance in the role of Irina Galliulin in the Star Trek: The Original Series third season episode “The Way to Eden”.

A Memorial and Celebration of Life is being planned this July for MaryLinda in Booth Bay.

Below is a tribute video featuring clips and moments from Rapelye’s career.
